Consent decision making

At the time of working to create an agile organization, it is important to pay extra attention towards consent decision making as well. Along with consent decision making, it is possible to make sure that the decisions made within the organization are more inclusive. It can also provide an ideal environment to ensure quick decision making.

Consent can be considered as a well-documented process. Hence, consent decision making will always help people to end up with better results than ordinary decision making. In here, consent will be based upon just in time decision making. This will receive quick feedbacks. As a result, it is possible to make decisions quickly. However, there are drawbacks associated with consent decision making as well. For example, it is not the most effective method when you are making massive decisions, which can create a major impact on the organization that involves the participation of numerous stakeholders. If all of them are not present in the table, consent decision making will never deliver positive results.

If you are looking forward to implement consent decision making within your agile organization, you need to have a clear understanding on how to do it. In here, a single person will present peer-reviewed solution. Then the group will ask for clarification questions. This will not be a debate or a discussion. A mood check will be used in order to determine if the group is starting out with this proposal.

Then the facilitator will call for consent. If the mood is favorable among all participants, a consent decision will be made. If there are any objections, they will be heard during the process as well. Based on the feedback received, it is possible to update the proposal and make appropriate decisions. This is done until all the objections are resolved.
